    Bio:

    In the 70’s Ted produced several fantasy short subjects and wrote for
    various film magazines. In 1977 he published and edited his own
    magazine called SPFX-Special Effects Magazine. After a few issues he
    quit to produce and write several low-budget science fiction/horror
    films including FIEND and NIGHTBEAST. In 1993 Ted resumed publication
    of SPFX and does to this day.

    In 1980 Ted started his own production company FILMLINE
    COMMUNICATIONS. He produced and wrote the story for his first
    theatrical feature, THE DEADLY SPAWN.

    Throughout the 80’s Ted worked on various films as producer, director,
    story consultant, writer, special effects designer/supervisor, 2nd
    unit director, and stunt actor. These films include MIND KILLER, LONE
    WOLF, GAMBLIN, and THE AMITYVILLE CURSE.

    In 1988, Ted produced the 35mm monsterfest, METAMORPHOSIS: THE ALIEN
    FACTOR. Beside producing the film Ted also served as story writer,
    creature designer, stuntman, and second unit director.

    Ted has also produced the anthology films FANTASTIC FILMSHOW I & II
    and directed various episodes.

    THE REGENERATED MAN, which Ted wrote, produced, and directed was shot

    the same software used for the dinosaur effects in Jurassic Park.

    Ted produced, directed and wrote the sci-fi/comedy VAMPIRE VIXENS FROM
    VENUS. The film had a successful run on USA TV network “Up All
    Night.”

    In 1994, Ted was the host, producer and director of HOLLYWOOD EAST

    Ace Award. It was shot at New York's PLANET HOLLYWOOD.

    In 1997, Ted was the director and producer of the 16mm coming of age
    film, GENERATION X.

    During 2001-2002 Ted co-directed, produced, wrote and acted in the
    35mm feature THIS THING OF OURS. It stars, James Caan, Frank Vincent,
    Vincent Pastore, Pat Cooper, Chuck Zito, Vinny Vella, Joe Rigano,
    Danny Provenzano and Louis Vanaria.

    feature film DESTINATION FAME. It stars AJ Gil (American Idol) Cuba
    Gooding, Joe Jackson, Mario, Lyric, Ricky Aiello, Jordan Knight and a
    host of surprise celebrity guests. Music from the film will be
    released as a double CD.

    In 2007, Ted, with Dave Baumuller started a new film production
    company: HORROR BIZ FILMS. Ted co-produced, directed and wrote the
    horror/comedy, HELL ON EARTH.

    Ted has written a book, MAKING LOW-BUDGET SCIENCE FICTION FILMS: A
    REAL HORROR STORY.

    Six additional projects are in development for production, FIRST
    CONTACT: THE VISITOR, LOVE BY DESIGN, STARDANCER, THE BIOGENESIS
    EFFECT, ALIEN ON EARTH and NEW YORK COWBOYS.

    Ted, I have to say that I am jealous. Ever since I was young I have wanted to do something in the film industry, not to be a superstar, but to be a small gear in a big machine. I would have been satisfied with anything, no matter how small it was, as long as it involved makeup, props, costumes, stunt work, or anything really. I have had some encounters with people who do that for a living, and some people have shown an interest in my work. No matter how promising things seemed, they never seemed to pan out. I had a really good casting call once, and I thought that finally something was actually going to happen. It was cool to get a call from the casting director at home, about the new "Mark Wahlberg" movie to see if I was still interested. It was for a tiny part, but getting that call was exciting. Because of the shooting schedule that scene got filmed on the west coast and I missed out. Guess it was not in the cards. LOL. Seems like you have had the chance to have a great career in that industry. Its awesome that you got a chance to do something that others dream about. I am sure that you would have some great stories to tell. Glad that you took the time to write your post.

    Quoted from TheHueManatee:

    I work in a maximum security prison. Boring at times and extremely hectic at times.

    Would love to hear some stories/thoughts.

    #810 2 years ago

    I worked in the golf course industry for a good number of years. I started in the Pro Shop as an aspiring Golf Pro, but watched my boss pour his entire summer days (including weekends) into work. That, and my apparent ability ceiling, kept me from pursuing further. I worked at a different course as an Assistant Superintendent. I thought about pursuing that as a career, but I apparently enjoy summer too much to give up all of my weekends.

    I decided I wanted to pursue something relatively within my field of study and found work as a Supply Chain Manager at a very successful e-commerce company. It was very good for a lot of years. The pay was beyond my expectations, but the efficiency and autonomy we created gave the megalomaniac CEO nothing to do but micro-manage (ironically slowing down what we had created). The stress levels went through the roof as I saw many of my colleagues get fired on the spot, or demoted without merit. To give some perspective, we lost about 1/3 of our staff due to firings or resignations – we were attempting to hire during that same time and successfully retained 0 of the those employees. It was tough to walk away from the money, but after they started to deny use of our vacation time, I finally realized I needed to regain some work/life balance.

    Now I work for the state doing program evaluation and analysis. I just started this year, but the flexibility and overall tone is unreal compared to my previous employer. I took a significant paycut, but the pension and my other investments should still allow me to retire early, and hopefully with much lower blood pressure!

    Quoted from Frippertron:

    I couldn't imagine having to watch my back all the time. Are the inmates on lockdown most of the time or are they out of their cells?

    They are out of their cells, working jobs, doing programs, attending gym/rec/visits.

    If you are ever bored you can read the Commisioner's Directives for the Correctional Service of Canada. It's public information and you'd be surprised at some of the things you will find in there. (http://www.csc-scc.gc.ca/politiques-et-lois/005006-0001-eng.shtml)

    Quoted from Deaconblooze:

    Would love to hear some stories/thoughts.

    As much as I would love to , I just don't feel comfortable doing so on here. No knock on you, it's just me probably being paranoid.

    All I can say is this though. If I wrote a TV/Movie script about my place of employment and presented it to Netflix as a series for them to create.....they would read the script over and say "this is too far fetched and nobody would believe this."

    I'm a Chemist during the day and own an IT company providing support for about 10 - 12 SMBs in the area evenings and weekends. This 80h+ a week shit is starting to take its toll after 15 years.

    I did 80+ for over 30 years...my health suffered dearly from it.
    If you get stressed, early grey hair, stuff at home.....honestly in hindsight, it wasnt worth it for me.
    Take care of your health, work less, more joy.....especially as we get older.

    37.5h/week avg. for me. It's fantastic, 8 hr days, every second Friday off. 80h/w is no life in my opinion

    I'd love to do that, but it would entail me finding a 37.5h job that pays as well as working one job and running a business. I'd bail on the day job if health care didn't cost a billion dollars a month.

    State jobs are 37-1/2 hr weeks. Plus you typically get more holidays off. And I've seen jobs that pay nicely.

    Yeah, our free health care (in form of taxes anyway) is nice, not as many could afford good care in the States i'm sure

    Hours and job security are great.

    Internal politics like a lot of Govt Depts not so much.

    It does allow the freedom to spend more time/funds on my importation side venture so yin and yang.

    Well I did work in the audit division for Indiana. But after 32 years of service I was escorted by security to leave my office and not work there anymore. This is what hard work gets you now. So forced into retirement and the good point. I'm back here on the board enjoying talk about pinball.

    None, got a new supervisor that went to HR and lied about me. Heard from my old boss that the front office was looking to get rid of me. Didn't get to tell my side of the story and I was out the door. That's how they balance the budget around here. I'm not the first and won't be the last.

    By the the best embezzlers are the ones that DON"T get caught.

    I should be flying a floatplane, but because of COVID there's no work for me.

    I'm doing HR for a cargo company. Doesn't pay much, but it's a job, and it's completely remote, so I can play pinball and help with the kids during my breaks.
